My bad, I never noticed that but telling the truth I read the current "What 
is Mono?" section today for the first time. Maybe because I already knew 
what Mono is.:)

I believe that FAQ is written for people who don't read the FAQ, and the 
same seems to be true for the Main Page.:)

I think this would be more informative (some additions to the current 
"Mono allows your existing .NET binaries compiled on Windows to run on Linux 
with copy-deployment."

People probably would notice a blinking banner but a nice green box (like in 
the "Mono in the Real World" section) with bold text would be just as fine 
and less intrusive for this "advertisement".

Having the same on Downloads page would increase the probability of reading 
this notice.

I may be too pessimistic so the above solution is only a suggestion but as I 
see most Mono users believe that they have to recompile their code using mcs 
in order to function under Mono.
